Ferus Smit Secures New Order for Six ECOBOX Ships

Ferus Smit has won an order to build six vessels of its brand-new ECOBOX design for Symphony Shipping.

The design of ECOBOX is characterized by its flexibility of loading combined with very economical and ecological performance.

The design comprises:

  • A very large single hold of completely box shaped form;
  • Large loading floor area for project cargoes, including complete movable tweendeck;
  • 2 cargo cranes;
  • Deckhouse placed on foreship for better protection of deck cargo and enabling to load oversized items over the stern;
  • Open top notation, sailing in all weather conditions with maindeck hatches opened;
  • Bulbless canoe type bow design for optimum speed at various drafts and better sustained speed in adverse weather conditions;
  • Propeller equipped with a duct to reduce the maximum installed propulsion power;

The new vessels will be delivered from Ferus Leer yard starting from spring 2015.
